I recently discovered free online language courses. Word on the street is that these courses were created by the U.S. Government to teach foreign diplomats different languages. These courses are free because they were written 50ish years ago. Thus, they are now in the public domain. While the examples used may be way out of date, the words themselves are still very accurate. Enjoy your free online language course! I'm about to dive into modern Hebrew! Yahoo!
Here are links to the courses:
If you want the updated versions I'm told you can buy them at the Foreign Service Institute's website.
